Alumni eNewsletter: Gallaudet Alumni Boosts Women's Basketball Team in Boston (Archives)The Gallaudet Women's Basketball traveled to Massachusetts for the Tip Off tournament at Brandeis University near Boston during the weekend of November 22. With assistance from Kathy Vesey,G-'75, Director of Gallaudet University Regional Center - Northeast Region and Sherry Duhon, '77 of the Office of Alumni Relations, the reception and games were publicized to the alumni in the area. Sherry reported that the trip to Boston was surely something for me to experience! At the two games played by our Gallaudet women's team were well attended by Gallaudet Alumni. There were about 200 in attendance for both games, even more than the fans of the home team! We won first game over Nichols College, 85 to 55, and lost to Brandeis University, 95 to 65, in the championship game. Cassey Ellis and Kristin Feldman were Gallaudet representatives on the all-tournament team. The Gallaudet alumni of Boston area were elated to see their "home" team playing in their territory. Not only it was good for the alumni, but also it was so good seeing a lot of prospective students there, talking with the players and asking them questions about Gallaudet. The women's team gave the girls from the Learning Center a basketball clinic on Thursday night, and then we all had a small reception where we all sat together and share about Gallaudet experiences. It was a good weekend, but so cold!
